DIGESTION & ABSORPTION OF LIPIDS
In this eLearning module, you will learn about Digestion and absorption of lipids. Lipids are molecules that contain hydrocarbons and make up the building blocks of the structure and function of living cells. Lipids are insoluble in water and soluble in alcohol, ether, and chloroform. Lipid digestion and absorption are complex processes. Lipid digestion begins in the mouth continues in the stomach and ends in the small intestine. Lipid absorption involves hydrolysis of dietary fat in the lumen of the intestine followed by the uptake of hydrolyzed products by enterocytes.
